Moore (6-15) took the loss Tuesday against the Diamondbacks, coughing up eight runs (seven earned) on five hits and three walks over only 1.1 innings. He'll be grateful not to have to face J.D. Martinez again this year, after the slugger ripped a two-run double off Moore in the first inning and then followed it up with a grand slam in the second that chased him from the game. The lefty wraps up a disappointing campaign that mirrors the Giants' season as a whole, posting a 5.52 ERA, 1.53 WHIP and 148:67 K:BB through 174.1 innings while setting a new career high in losses.
Moore (6-14) shut the Rockies out for six innings Wednesday, taking home a 4-0 win. He struck out six while allowing six hits and two walks. The lefty's three prior starts against Colorado this season -- two of which came at Coors Field -- had resulted in him giving up an incredible 19 runs and 30 hits over the course of just 12.2 innings, so this was quite the reversal of fortune. Being safely home in the friendly confines of AT&T Park might have factored in, though that didn't help him against the Dodgers his last time out. There's a lot of noise in Moore's game log and stat line, some of it seemingly positive, but the fact is that he's carrying a 5.20 ERA and 1.50 WHIP while playing for a brutal Giants team, so it's hard to trust him -- especially with a start in hitter-friendly Arizona coming up next.
Moore (5-14) lasted just 4.1 innings in a losing effort Wednesday, giving up four runs on six hits with three walks and five strikeouts in a 4-1 loss to the Dodgers. Moore settled down after a two-run first inning, but a high pitch count and a fifth-inning home run courtesy of Cody Bellinger prevented the southpaw from finishing five frames for the seventh time this season. The 28-year-old's 5.39 ERA in 29 starts is the worst mark amongst all qualified National League pitchers. Moore's season has been a complete disaster, making it hard to trust him in his next start against the Rockies next Wednesday, even though it takes place in the friendly confines of AT&T Park.
Moore (5-13) allowed two runs on five hits and two walks with four strikeouts over 6.2 innings to pick up the win Friday against the White Sox Moore had his last start skipped as the Giants rearranged their rotation due to injuries and returns from injury. The rest seemed to do him well, as he rebounded well from his last start, a putrid outing in San Diego where he allowed two homers and five earned runs. Moore has been quietly solid of late, as he now owns a 3.21 ERA and a 1.10 WHIP over his last seven outings dating back to August 13.
Moore's next start will be pushed back to Friday against the White Sox after he was used out of the bullpen Sunday, Paul Gackle of The Mercury News reports. Moore tossed a pair of scoreless innings while striking out one in Sunday's loss to the Cardinals. The Giants reshuffled their rotation over the weekend due to Madison Bumgarner's illness and the return of Johnny Cueto from the disabled list. The move actually benefits whatever fantasy owners are left hanging on to the disappointing southpaw, as he will face a light-hitting White Sox lineup as opposed to taking on the Rockies at Coors Field.
